California Fire Updates (9.5.17)




fires.jpg

10,000+ firefighters battling 23 large wildfires in California.

Strong high pressure will continue to be over the northern region. Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler, but still above normal. Afternoon low relative humidity will still be at 8-14% for most areas. The high will gradually lose its influence on the northern region this week as the remains of Tropical Storm Lidia moves off shore. Moisture will begin to increase and conditions will become more unstable. This will lead to a few days of possible isolated thunderstorm development or even some light showers at times this week. Temperatures will be cooling to near normal for the latter half of the week. Southeast to south flow aloft will bring isolated to scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms to the mountains and deserts of the southern region through this weekend. Isolated showers will occur over the coastal and valley areas due to moisture from the remains of Tropical Storm Lidia. The southern region will be sitting between a high pressure over the Great Basin and Four Corners area and weak low pressure off the California coast through this weekend. This will cause near normal temperatures and humid conditions across most of the region through this weekend.

Motorists are responsible for many of the wildfires sparked along our roadways.  Nearly all these fire starts could be prevented by following safety rules that include practicing safe towing, no dragging parts, checking tire pressure, and properly maintaining brakes. Don't drive your vehicle onto dry grass or brush. hot exhaust pipes and mufflers can start fires that you won't even see. For current fire information, visit www.fire.ca.gov.
